“Be the change you want to see in the world.”—Mahatma Gandhi
A hard adjustment, accepting change,
to meet face to face, eye to eye.
Resistant are we to re-arrange
familiar lives, or to say goodbyes.
In life’s many bags of tricks and surprises,
there is often no time to ruminate
about our next move, or to ponder the whys.
Too fast for a new seed to germinate.
Yet change can become an adventure,
and we explorers of our new days.
Who might we meet if we did not venture
into unknown waters and different ways.
The challenge is to seize up the new;
if you cannot digest it, protest what’s askew.
